APPLE PICKING

Posted on: Wednesday, October 22, 2014

October. Apple picking month! We headed off to Warwick, NY to visit Ochs Orchard - about a two hour drive outside of the city - and it was wonderful. Lucas had a blast exploring and eating apples that were pretty much the most delicious of all the apples in New York (really!). He loved running up and down the orchard and helping us select the best ones to take home. Needless to say he slept like a dream that night and we have been finding all the creative ways to chow down on our seemingly endless supply of apples at home.                                                  On Lucas: hoodie c/o little boogaweezin | beanie c/o kira kids

That's right. Real boys rock peach. I am so in love with these Macarons pants from Carousel NY. Cuffed twice, the mustard lining adds the perfect Autumn touch. Also perfect? This knit beanie from Lulu Luvs (made in Brooklyn!) and a Popupshop Tiger sweater from Milk Bots.

An apple the size of your head? Heck yea baby boy!

BOATING WITH THE BOYS

Posted on: Friday, October 17, 2014

Last Sunday was perfect. I woke up one day last week and decided I wanted to go row boating in Central Park. 29 years in this city and I had never been. I told Ivan that it was a "I need to cross this off my bucket list before I'm 30" kinda thing and he happily obliged. We woke up, walked to The Boat House, and got it done. It was magical and hilarious. Magical in only the way New York City can be. Sometimes it stops me in my tracks, this gorgeous city. Hilarious because rowing those boats are not easy and well, Ivan got a pretty decent work out with those oars. Those biceps are making me all sorts of school girl giddy ;) Well worth it my love! Lucas had a blast until he didn't. He lasted a solid 45 minutes on the boat before declaring "time to go home". Well then.

My boys sure know how to make this mama happy. Boating with the boys - the best. 

EARLY MORNINGS

Posted on: Thursday, October 16, 2014



That bed head. Your raspy, morning voice. The light flooding our living room. The way you request your leche. The way you refuse to drink it out of any bottle except your purple one that really should be thrown away. The grasp you have on all three of your bobos (pacis). Those cheeks that are covered in dried toddler drool. Those cheeks I could kiss over and over. The warmth of your hugs. The way you request "paaaaaw patrol mama".

Early mornings with my boy.

THE PERFECT KIND OF SATURDAY

Posted on: Wednesday, October 15, 2014

Even when our mornings consist of lots of lazy hangs we can usually muster up the energy to make our way out in the afternoon. Oh Saturday. You are the perfect balance and the perfect day for us as a family. We got our act together and cruised to the park. I can't get enough of the perfect weather. Just the right amount of chill to make you feel all the cozy feelings. Ya know? I also wanted to talk a bit about Lucas's perfect little beanie. Hand made by one of the sweetest mamas (hands down on this one) I have had the pleasure of getting to know. Jen is a mom and founder of Prjona Plym. She hand knits her beanies with so much love and Lucas's "I Will Shine" hat is a favorite of mine. It's a gift I will treasure. You can shop more of her hats here. "Free Sprit" is another fave. I mean..so good!                                                 hot dog raglan c/o kira kids | trousers c/o no sweet kids | boots c/o bogs
